Supreme Court Upholds Election Of Yahaya Bello As Kogi Governor

The Supreme Court on Monday upheld the election of Mr. Yahaya Bello as Governor of Kogi State.

In a judgement prepared by Justice Inyang Okoro and read by Justice Uwani Abba-Aji, the Apex Court disagreed with the appeal filed on five grounds by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the Kogi governorship election, Musa Wada.

Mr. Wada claimed that the election held on November 16, 2019, was riddled with serious electoral infractions; rigging and over-voting, and that Governor Bello didn’t secure the highest vote.
